    News Carbon offset from HCVA Thursday, 11 November 2021 at 0:00:00 UTC By Al Suttie HCVA launches carbon offset scheme The Historic and Classic Vehicles Alliance has launched a new initiative to help classic vehicles achieve net-zero carbon dioxide emissions. The scheme offsets CO2 emissions and is being run in partnership with NET-HERO. Vehicle driver contribute 2p per mile they drive annually, so a typical classic car owner covering 1200 miles per annum would pay £30 for a year’s CO2 offsetting. The money is used to support reforestation and the restoration of peatland and grassland. Every driver who signs up to the scheme will receive a vignette they can display in their car. The HCVA’s Garry Wilson said: ‘The historic and classic vehicles sector is a vanishingly small contributor to the UK’s carbon dioxide emissions yet contributes nearly £3 billion to the Exchequer each year. Classic vehicles are also an important part of our cultural heritage so we want to ensure that the wider classic sector have the ability to achieve a Net-Zero status ahead of the mainstream automotive sector.’

These two latter age groups make up 33% of all heritage attraction visitors in the past five years. Road and rail attractions are the two most popular with visitors, followed by marine and aviation. The opinion poll was conducted by Kantar and interviewed 1232 people across all ages, gender, ethnicity, region, and socio-economic groups. Francis Galashan, Chair of Trustees for the Federation Skills Trust, said: ‘We hope people will conclude that interest in the heritage sector is healthy.

Produced by PH Components with a new formula specifically for classic Rolls and Bentley models, the anti-freeze/coolant was developed in response to customer demand. Neil Arman, Director of Flying Spares, said: ‘PHC is a great British brand known for top quality hard parts, but classic enthusiasts were calling for a new premium antifreeze/coolant, so they partnered with one of Europe’s leading aviation solvent suppliers to create one. The new formula is a mix of borate, nitrite and organic acids, with a sophisticated silicate stabilisation system to protect against extreme cold and heat. ‘We’ve tested the new PHC antifreeze/coolant extensively, both in our Technical Services Division workshop here in Market Bosworth, and out on the road in our Silver Spirit test car. We’re confident that it solves the seal degradation issues associated with low grade and incorrect formulas, and will meet the exacting standards of heritage Rolls-Royce and Bentley owners. Like all our PHC products, we back it with a market-leading three-year warranty.’
